Travelling along Hwy. 7 in York Region’s south end continues to be a headache for commuters, the newly released Canadian Automobile Association’s worst roads in the 905 area shows.

The list, released June 4, is compiled annually based on nominations from the public.

Looking at the worst roads in Halton, Peel, York and Durham regions, Hwy. 7 in Vaughan came in at number two, while Hwy. 7 in Markham came in third on the top five list for the 905 region.

16th Avenue in Richmond Hill was fifth.

Rounding out the list was Speers Road in Oakville, which came in first, and Bloor Street West in Oshawa, which was fourth.

This isn’t the first time commuters have expressed their frustration with Hwy. 7.

Last year, in the Halton-Peel-York-Durham category, Hwy. 7 in Markham was No. 1 on the list.

Bayview Avenue in Richmond Hill was fourth on last year’s list but didn’t make it this year.

Overall, no York Region roads made it to this year’s top 10 list of worst roads across the province.

However, Steeles Avenue East, considered the border between York Region and Toronto, was fifth on the city’s list of five worst roads.

Burlington Street East in Hamilton is Ontario’s worst road.
